Video Series Explores Park and Colonial History…in Under Two Minutes!

February 27th, 2020 History,News and Events

To make colonial history understandable and fun for students of all ages, the Friends of Washington Crossing Historic Park created a video series called ’76 Seconds of History.

Each video packs a relevant aspect of the crossing and Washington Crossing Historic Park into just over a minute. One minute and sixteen seconds, to be exact.

In each video, host Matt answers a key question related to the crossing, the park, or the Continental Army’s time in Bucks County. Videos have covered everything from “What’s a Durham boat?” to “What if Washington hadn’t crossed the Delaware?”

Videos are available on the park website and can be used in classrooms with or without an accompanying lesson plan.

’76 Seconds of History videos are created with support from Capital Health.
